I've just been diagnosed with Crohn's as of yesterday. I've had recurring problems for the past 2 - 3 years and horrible doctors who did nothing to help me or assumed the inflammation and symptoms would clear on their own. After finally finding a doctor who listened and tested he's diagnosed me and given me a medication to try.
As I am glad to finally know what is going on with my body - I'm hesitant and nervous to take these meds. He prescribed me Mercaptopurine aka Purinethol. The descript
ion and side effects of the medicine make me worried because I've already lost a ton of weight and and don't need to lose appetite, feel nauseous or lose hair.
I was wondering if anyone had taken this med before and how they felt with it?
Also if there were other websites to recommend for information and support.
